control, and tax hikes. you notice anything missing? bob cusak and sabrina says democrats are embolden this time and spending cuts last on the list. bob, first to you. bob, the president is essentially a lame duck, the second term, 16 months. that's a lot to deal with in 16 months. what's first on the agenda, do you think? >> first is gun control, and, obviously, this was before the connecticut shooting, but he did not talk about it in the first term. he didn't push it. he's going to be pushing that, pushing immigration, pushing climate change, but spending is not on his agenda, cutting spending. i think he was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think h

were determined to protect in that debate was the new markets tax credit, something that has benefited some of these kinds of initiatives throughout the country. so whether it was long ago and the low-income housing tax credit of which mercy housing has participated in over and over again and the new market tax credit, one of the current versions of the story. or the section 8 vouchers or the rest of that, public policy has played a role. but we can only be successful in achieving the funding for that public policy if we have examples of national significance to say this must be a priority. and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and stability and resp
from taking this legislative tax out of this five-page document into a detailed legislative proposal. they're. there are going to be a number of -- this bill could be several hundred pages long and we are talking about a very sweeping change not just in the legal immigration system but as well as how you deal with the 11 million illegal immigrants. how they do that in the hurdles that remain will be interesting to see how much they detail that. >> you point out in one of your stories at the vigorous debate on this since -- >> and we remember what happened then. this blew up in the senate after big push by the bush administration and a bipartisan coalition trying to get this through with opposition from both sides and of course creating amnesty but we have seen some of those going through muted in the initial days and we will see what happens when the legislative process continues. >> the gang of eight for four republicans and four democrats have put together work of an immigration bill and immigration principles. how do we find out that the gang exists? >> one of our reporters was th
raise the gas tax by 5 cents a gallon to pay for projects, and the debate in virginia is one of the most watched in the country. governor bob mcdonald wants to overhaul transportation funding by dumping the state's gas tax. he would then replace it with a transportation targeted increase in the state sales tax and shift the burden off drivers and on everyone in the state. >>> here is what are you currently paying in total state gas taxes, throughout the washington area. in washington, d.c., it is 23.5 cents. it's the same in maryland. but our partners at usa today report in virginia, it is 19.9 cents. that's on top of an 18.4 cents federal gas tax that you are also paying. >>> coming up next when the news continues, incredible video from australia, where first responders race against time to save a boy stranded in raging floodwaters. >>> and they booed at their last president two years ago, now the egyptians are taking to the streets demanding that their new president heed the call for democracy. >>> thousands of egyptians are in the streets demanding change, two years after hosni mubara
through taxes in addition, there is no pressure on them to really cut. they really control wall street. it's not that money controls washington. washington controls the money. they have industrial logic to this business model just like any other business model. that is to extract power from the rest of the country into money into centralized location which is washington. >> you mentioned in your piece, peter about maserati and fine wines and exclusive restaurants and home prices, et cetera, are these government employees that buy the maseratis? >> it's probably not government employees. it's people that influence government policies. so it's people like lobbiyists. people who ho run contracting firms. only business or customers is the federal government. it's money that gets sloshed around in all those different ways. the reality is that, you know, i lived in washington, d.c. in the 1980s, it was really kind of a middle class town with some wealthy areas. it's a completely different place now. and part of it is the size of the federal budget has grown enormously. and, of course, they take
of trillions of dollars of tax payer money that floods into this city every year. >> while one out of every 6 americans worries about where their next meal is coming from, washington, d.c. has the highest rate of fine wine consumption in the united states. while one out of four americans has a mortgage that is under water, seven of the ten wealthiest counties in the united states are counties around this region. washington, d.c. now has the highest per capita income in the entire united states. they just passed silicone valley. >> you are going to discover that washington, d.c., a town that used to be a town of sleepy bureaucrats is now a town of moz ratty deal moz rot at this deal fine wine luxurious homes and luxurious shops. it's a washington, d.c. a lot of people never see when they take their tours or go to the museums. it's the washington, d.c. that respects the reality of our country today. >> the great american writer f scott fitzgerald once wrote that the rich are different from you and me. america's previous boom town became wealthy because they produced something. san francisco dur
should simpfie our tax code not for the benefit of washington, d.c. but to get washington, d.c. out of the way. let's get rid of the loopholes paid for by lob yist. it shouldn't be complicated for a taxpayer to fill out his taxes or to live his life in fear of the tax consequences for his or her choices. let the democrats extol the virtues of our an indicated one size fits all factory schools where the child follow it is dollars. meanwhile let us republicans feature the successed of child sentered education solutions, education solutions where the dollars follow the child. [applause] these are but a few examples of the way we must fight the battle or how we must win the argument. one thing we've got to get straight right now washington has spent a generation trying to bribe our citizens and extort our states. as republicans it's time to quit arguing around the edges of this corrupt system. that brings me to my third point which i want to shift gears and speak to changes i believe we must make if we are to win elections. as i ipped kated before i do not believe we need to abandon or
pay in taxes with filling up the gas tank that could be going up. >> that's right hiking the gas tax on the table around the country for various states. even right here in our own neck of the woods. in maryland counties could raise the tax by up to five cents a gallon. to pay for local transportation projects. yesterday in annapolis it was in a proposal. the debate in virginia has become one of the most watched in the country. governor mcconnell wants to -- mcdonnell wants to actually dump the state's gas tax. he then would replace it with a transportation targeted increase in the state sales tax that idea is catching some heat because it would shift the burden off of drivers and onto everyone in the state. so what do you currently natoal state sales taxes throughout the washington area? in d.c., it's 23.5 cents. the same in maryland and our partners at usa record that in virginia it -- "usa today" report that in virginia it's 19.5 cents. that's on top of the 18.4 cents federal gas tax you are also paying. lots of taxes every time you fill up. >>> for starbucks the coffee chain enjoy
was 87 years old. >>> and a proposed gas tax hike in maryland and a redistricting controversy in the commonwealth. we'll be right back. excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. >>> the news at 10 returns with lots of hot topics in politics. voter redistricting in the commonwealth and another gas tax hike in maryland. mark plotkin joins us. thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> accusations that senate republicans pulled a dirty trick to get the redistricting measure passed. tell us about that. >> this has to do with state legislature in virginia and most states draws the lines. only supposed to be done once every 10 years and republicans who are tied wit
austerity or the taxes are used to bail out governments on the other side of the continent. we are starting to see this in the demonstrations on the streets of athens, magid and world. we're starting to see it in the parliaments of berlin, helsinki and the hague. and yes, of course, we are seeing this frustration with the eu very dramatically here in the united kingdom. europe's leaders have a duty to hear these concerns. indeed, we have a duty to act on them. and not just to fix the problems in the eurozone. for just as in any emergency you should plan for the aftermath as well as dealing with the present crisis, so, too, in the midst of the present challenges we should plan for the future, and what the world will look like when the difficulties and the eurozone have been overcome. now, the biggest danger to the european union comes not from those who advocate change, but from those who denounce new thinking as heresy. in its long history europe has experience of heretics who turned out to have a point. and my point is this. more the same on the secure a long-term future for the eurozone.
and taxes even more, whether it is cap and trade, regulating our economy and raising the costs for every american, they are feeling emboldened right now. and if conservatives stand together, we can stop that, and stopping bad things that would harm this country, that would harm americans, is a major victory for the next two years. [applause] but the third thing we can do in the short term is we can use leverage points to plaque real progress on the fiscal and economic crisis threatening this country. the fundamental dynamic when you have divided government is that whichever side owns the default is in the stronger position. either party can stop anything. so whoever wins if nothing gets done, wins the negotiation, wins the battle. it's why on fiscal cliff we got such a lousy deal. because if nothing happened, the result was a massive tax increase on er american who pays taxes, and i think president obama was perfectly fine, he was serene to go off that cliff. why? because his substantive agenda, which he doesn't hide from, is to dramatically expand the size and power of government, and t
be making a bigger case about taxes, spending, shoot for the mountains and not get dragged down on what he says is clearly democrats and the president's turf. >> we have to focus, steve, i believe republicans -- i've said it time and time again -- on taxes. on cutting spending. on saving entitlements. on saving america from this crushing national debt. it grew $6 trillion under barack obama over the past term. and try to avoid some of these other issues. but i hear bobby jindal's new federalism on crack talking about cutting federal employees by three-quarters, et cetera, et cetera. that ain't going to happen. with the changing demographics and where america is and where it's going over the next 20 every 30 years. >> that's the issue. if you separate it, i think the first part not being the stupid party anymore is sort of a no-brainer. why would you go around insulting important interest groups. >> women. >> yeah, the 47%, all that stuff. but then you get to his policy proposals, and i don't think he's in the mainstream of this country when you talk about 25% of the government buildings, c
government workers were given of taxpayer money to your taxes to allow green energy company to great prosperity. that path is a disaster. balancing the government books is not what matters most. government is not the and all and be all. the health of america is not about government at all. balancing the books as a nice goal but that is not our primary objective. our objective is to grow the private sector. need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i will talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else away from what i say, understand this -- we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth. we know the government is out of control and the public knows that, too, yet we just lost an election. we cannot afford to fight on our terms. the republican party must become the party of growth, the party for a prosperous future based on economic growth, an opportunity based on every community in this great nation and not based in washington, d.c. we have fall into

to help make the pitch to raise $3.1 billion over the next five years, but the corner torn has a tax cut and tack hike. the governor would scrap the gas tax and hike the state sales stacks, 5 cents to 5.8 cents, but mcdonald's plan has competition, including proposals from some gop lawmakers from northern virginia, and senate democrats, angry about a surprise redistricting bid by the gop counterpart have threatened to block the governor's plan. >> unlike the bills, we have the support of the community and the business leaders. that's why i think we have a shot of passing. >> reporter: fairfax county chamber of commerce has put its support behind the governor. >> there's a crisis in funding for transportation initiatives in northern virginia and across the state. >> reporter: the case was strengthened by showing 2:1 support among virginians in a recent survie, 63 percent favored the are the support it. we also found a majority of drivers like the idea of trading the gas tax for a slightly higher sales tax. >> we're already paying enough in general for gas as it is. there's got to be a bet

from a federal perspective is that this takeover is subsidized through tax credits that or just extended by the fiscal cliff bill, which allows investors to come into our inner-city neighborhoods and build expensive buildings, turned over and lease them to a charter boards and high rates, so charters don't have sufficient funding to even operator schools as far as operating expenses such as teachers and books and so on. i'm concerned about proliferation of charter's and what this has done to destroy neighborhoods. host: here's a comment -- coming up next, we will talk more about immigration policy. what the president had to say yesterday and what a bipartisan group of senators announced earlier this week. argos -- our guest is carlos gutierrez, now working on immigration issues as well as other things in his portfolio. later on, paul krugman, a columnist, gave us a visit. we will be right back.

in louisiana including the tax reform he's just launched in the past few weeks, what he's doing is trying to think about how at this moment at a time when globalization's putting enormous pressures on working class voters, at a time when the economy is going through a very complicated, difficult moment when it's not clear how to get back to growth, he's thinking creatively about how to use the strength of his state to build on its weaknesseses. and i think at the national level that's what conservatives have to do. to some extempt, it's being done. i would say the policy agenda that has to come at the end of that conversation is not fully worked out by any means, but the questions are being asked. i think the direction of thinking has been helpful even in the wake of the election. if you listen to what people like marco rubio or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you'
